EDUCATIONAL OUTCOMES

According to the United Nations progress in educational access has yielded improvements in adult literacy and educational attainment globally. Illiteracy among youths has been eradicated in many regions of the world, and the vast majority of young women and men presently have basic reading and writing skills. Similar progress has been made in Nigeria, however, some states lag significantly far behind others in eradicating illiteracy and improving educational attainment.
